The Oxford International Intellectual Property Moot is held annually in Oxford over a weekend in March. It is hosted by the Oxford Intellectual Property Research Centre and organized by a committee of DPhil and FHS students with an interest in intellectual property. The competition invites teams from universities around the world to prepare written submissions and present oral argument on each side of a hypothetical intellectual property law problem set by experts in the field. NB The Faculty has not joined this moot, and only sends a team when a University of Toronto student has been personally invited by virtue of having been named Best Non-Graduating Oralist at the Fox Intellectual Property Moot.

Note: The Moot is conditional enrol and will be added to the student's course selection once confirmation of participation is confirmed. In the meantime, students must select sufficient credits for the term/year. Once approved students will have the opportunity to adjust their credits.
